Anthony Michaels-Moore: Songs of the Sea - Songs of Travel (Rosenblatt Recitals)
Anthony Michaels-Moore (Baritone); Michael Pollock (Piano);
From ‘one of the most gorgeous voices on the opera stage today’ (Opera News) comes a selection of nautical favourites by Stanford, celebrating a time when England ruled the waves, complemented by song cycles from Vaughan Williams that look beyond, from the Dorset vales towards America and the far horizon.
Presenting the major singers of today and the stars of tomorrow, the Rosenblatt Recitals are London's only world-class season of opera recitals. This new partnership with Opus Arte will see 5-6 CDs released per year, based predominantly on studio recordings with occasional bonus live tracks.
"In all these sea-faring songs Michaels-Moore's voice is richly unfurled. Stanford's settings are great fun, especially when sung and played as enthusiastically as here. As his songs do not receive the attention that they deserve, these selections fill a gap." (International Record Review)
"... it’s good to have Anthony Michaels-Moore’s sovereign artistry captured in repertoire that he serves so well, for there is much here to relish and return to." (Classical Source)
